  • ASTM D3849 - 07(2011) Standard Test Method for Carbon Black—Morphological Characterization of Carbon Black Using Electron Microscopy

    Carbon black morphology significantly affects the transient and end-use properties of carbon black loaded polymer systems. A carbon black's particle size distribution is its single most important property, and it relates to degree of blackness and rubber reinforcement. For a given loading of carbon black, blackness and reinforcement increase with smaller particle size. Aggregate size and shape ...

  • Testing Environment

    During the summer of 2012 I was one of the lucky, if undeserving, torch bearers for the London Olympics. The fact that a UN bureaucrat was given such an honour owes much to the growing importance of the environment in sport worldwide. Since 1994, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) has been working ever closer with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to raise the 'green' bar of the summer ...

  • LA Testing demystifies LEED testing

    LEED testing for indoor air quality is made simple by California’s dedicated environmental laboratory network. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) established criteria that became a primary tool in rating and certifying new and existing building structures. An official LEED certification increases the value of the property as operational costs of the facilities are usually much lower. ...
